Inspired by Janelle

One Layer Wednesday, hosted by Susan at Simplicity this week is challenging us to make a card based on inspiration from Janelle's blog.  I was inspired by the opening post and the cards she made with Papertrey's Mat Stack 3 in THIS POST.  I used Papertrey's All Booked Up and Round and Round to take her layered card and make it one layer(and my first Christmas cards...I'm still loving Fall, but making these were fun:)!!).  Janelle's cards are inspiring, but her life is the most amazing inspiration...what an incredible woman!!  Janelle, you are a treasure!!!   Here are my cards:

Stamped in Old Olive and used a red gel pen for the dots between the leaves on the first one and the dots between the sentiments on both.  Used nailhead stick ons on the second, the sentiment is Hero Arts(Holiday Sayings).  Put ribbon where the sentiment is usually stamped.
Thanks for looking, hope you have a great weekend!!

  11. Love how you used the ribbon around where the sentiment usually is. Great idea that I probably wouldn't have thought of in a million years. :) Thanks for looking at my blog and playing along with the challenge!
